PewDiePie has given an insight to the ages of people watching the world’s largest YouTube channel.

While showing memes from the PewDiePie subreddit, he came across a user asking to reveal the analytics of his channel to show how many 9 year olds are actually in the PewDiePie Army. 

The idea of PewDiePie’s fan base being made up of 9 year olds was suggested by Alinity, as part of a dispute that originated with Alinty copystriking a video of PewDiePie calling her a “Thot.”

PewDiePie complied with the request and brought up the age analytics of his channel. Surprisingly, the 25-34 demographic has a higher percentage of views than the 13-17 age group at 28% and 11%, respectively.

18-24 is the most popular group on PewDiePie’s channel, making up 44% of the views.

There is a huge fall off in viewership after turning 35, as 35 to 65+ makes up just 17% of his channel combined. The lowest age group is 55 to 64, checking in at 1%.

The numbers also showed the average view duration for each age group, with 25-34 leading the way at 6:18. The 55-64 grandparents who forgot to log out of their grandchildren’s YouTube account once again bring up the rear, watching only for 5:17 on average.

Of course, PewDiePie’s analytics are only accurate if the people creating YouTube accounts are being truthful.

Google does not allow anyone under the age of 13 to create a Google account, and the minimum age is as high as 16 in some EU countries. It is possible that any age group listed is actually a 9 year old on someone else’s account.

Officially, 9 year olds do not watch PewDiePie and he is the most popular with people aged between 18 and 24. Unofficially, the amount of 9 year olds watching PewDiePie is anywhere between 0 and 65 million. Check out the video below to decide for yourself.

BTS crushes 28-year-old record for most music show awards in a year

K-Pop group BTS have once again broken a record after scoring a win at the 2020 Asia Artist Awards (AAA).

BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, consists of seven members: V, J-Hope, RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, and Suga. The group debuted in 2013 before soaring to international popularity in 2018 after releasing the YouTube Premium documentary Burn the Stage.

Most recently, BTS released their fifth studio album ‘Be’ on November 20, which includes Dynamite – the first of their songs to be recorded fully in English.

Dynamite helped BTS break their latest record after the song won the Daesung for ‘Best Song of the Year’ at the AAAs.

In the K-Pop world, a Daesung is one of the most prestigious accolades an artist can receive. When winning a Daesung, the focus is on the records the artist released that year, and takes into account how many copies – both digital and physical – were sold.

By winning this latest Daesung, BTS broke a record that has previously been held since 1992 by K-pop trio Seo Taiji and the Boys. The band had previously collaborated with BTS in 2017 in a 25th anniversary concert, wherein Taiji announced that he was passing the torch onto BTS to continue K-Pop’s legacy.

“This is your generation now,” Taiji said at the time.

BTS’ Daesung for Dynamite also extends their record for the most Daesungs in history to 43 – a record they previously broke in 2019 after they won a total of 37.

This isn’t the first time the group’s hit song Dynamite has broken records. Back in August, they broke several milestones on YouTube after fans eagerly watched the premiere of the song’s music video.

One record they broke was for most views within 10 minutes of uploading a YouTube video, as over 20 million viewers tuned in to watch Dynamite during that timeframe.

The live premiere of the video also broke the YouTube record for most concurrent viewers.  One live count recorded that between 3 to 4 million people were watching the video at once.
